FALL RIVER, Mass. — The trial of a Massachusetts man charged with fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend’s new love interest is continuing this week.
Testimony in the murder trial of 25-year-old Jeffrey Souza is scheduled for Monday in Fall River Superior Court. The trial started last week.
Souza is charged with shooting 28-year-old Kyle Brady in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2015. Prosecutors say the pair had exchanged hundreds of angry text messages in the months before the deadly confrontation.
The Herald News (http://bit.ly/2cwdeBE ) reports that witnesses testified that the pair arranged to meet for a fight and that they saw Souza with a silver handgun.
Souza’s attorney says in court documents that Souza was beaten by Brady and three other people just before Brady was shot in the chest at close range.
